Singles magician Taufik Hidayat has cut himself loose from the Indonesian Badminton Association (the PBSI - Persatuan Bulutangkis Seluruh Indonesia). He says he had planned to quit the national camp as early as in 2004, after he won the MS gold at the Athens Olympic Games. Although Hidayat will no longer play under the Indonesian team banner, he will continue his international competitive career as an Indonesian player. "I will never play for another country," he said, perhaps in a reference to many Indonesian pros who have donned competitive jerseys for other nations The Jakarta Globe and Badzine have details. So, will the 27-year-old be able to pull off a few giant victories in his new independent role?
